I'm new here, so please forgive a dumb question or two. Just tried to download Air Adventures of Jimmie Allen, but only ~16 episodes of ~50 downloaded. Am I doing something wrong?

Hello, Wordguy. I'm guessing that you were on this page, one of three Jimmy Allen pages on the site:

http://archive.org/details/TheAirAdventuresOfJimmyAllen

You'll notice that the zip file that you downloaded was named '64 Kbps MP3 ZIP'. This means that it only contains the files that are in the 64Kbps column on that page, of which there are sixteen. To complete your collection, you will have to download the files in the 32Kbps column, down the right side of the page, individually.

This issue seems to be slowly getting better, so that pages with files of different bitrates will have a 'Download Whole Directory' zip file, which contains the whole shebang. Until they are all like that, we'll all have to do some serious clicking and saving, but for the price, it's still a good deal.

Sorry I can only offer an explanation, and not a solution. Incidentally, the thing that has me wondering if I'm on the same page as you is that this page has a total of 120 files.

Hope this helped.

It helped enormously. A little cumbersome, to be sure, but as you correctly observe, ya just can't beat the price!

Many thanks

If you run into this problem again the way i do it is to replace the word details with compress in the url of the item


http://archive.org/details/TheAirAdventuresOfJimmyAllen

Change to

http://archive.org/compress/TheAirAdventuresOfJimmyAllen

that should give you a copy of everything on the page in a zip file. Its been a while since i used this method but i bet it still works.
